Anthony DeBlasi, PhD, an Associate Professor of Chinese Studies, will wind up the spring semester’s “Campus Conversations in Standish” with a presentation titled “Stuck in the Middle with You”: Medieval Chinese Political Culture and the Odd Reigns of the Tang Emperor Zhongzong (r. 684 and 705-710).

The talk will take place on Wednesday, April 17, 2019, 12:35-1:30 p.m. in the Science Library’s Patricia and J. Spencer Standish Board Room. All are welcome. Complimentary refreshments will be provided. The event will be co-sponsored by the University Libraries and the campus chapter of Phi Beta Kappa, Alpha Alpha of New York, of which Professor DeBlasi is president and Trudi Jacobson, Head of the Libraries’ Information Literacy Department, is secretary.

Professor DeBlasi will discuss how the political career of the Emperor Zhongzong, one of the most overlooked rulers during the Tang Dynasty, helps illuminate the historical dynamics of that dynasty specifically and the contours of China’s medieval political culture more generally.

The University at Albany Libraries launched “Campus Conversations in Standish” in spring 2015 to raise awareness of UAlbany faculty research and expertise, and to connect the UAlbany community and beyond in an exchange of ideas and perspectives. “Campus Conversations in Standish” are held two to three times per semester on selected Wednesdays from 12:35 to 1:30 p.m. in the Science Library’s Patricia and J. Spencer Standish Board Room. They are free and open to the public.
